Linyanti

a scenic playground for an abundance of wildlife

Bordering the Okavango Delta, Caprivi Strip and the Chobe National Park, it is no surprise that the Linyanti Wetlands is a playground for an abundance of wildlife. Track big cats, elephants, and wild dog across the plains of this 125,000 hectare wilderness. 

Supplied by the waters of the Linyanti River, the Linyanti Wetlands is a scenic paradise of tangled riverine forest, papyrus swamps and grassland. The banks of the river offer superb sightings of wildlife that come down to drink in plain view. Most famous are the herds of elephants, numbering in the hundreds, who drink and bathe in the water before retreating to the plains of the forest.

The forests of Linyanti provide a sanctuary to troops of baboon, buffalo, impala as well as the rare roan and sable antelope. The floodplains are traversed by giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and wildebeest, whilst leopard, lion and cheetah occupy the plains and wooded areas of Linyanti. A rise in wild dog numbers also make sightings of this endangered animal more common. Birders should look out for a host of colourful and interesting birdlife, from cranes to bee-eaters.

The Linyanti wetlands are protected by a handful of private conservancies that offer exclusive access to fantastic game-viewing areas. The Selinda Reserve protects over 130,000 hectares of the Linyanti and is perfect for the avid adventurer with plenty of activities on offer. Water levels permitting, you can enjoy boat safaris, canoeing and fishing. The Selinda Spillway – a floodplain system at the heart of the reserve – offers glorious wildlife encounters.

Our tailor-made trips to Liyanti make the most of the region’s stunning wildlife and exceptional reserves.
